Marvin Compper will make his Celtic debut today against Morton.

The January signing from RB Leipzig got injured during the winter training camp in Dubai but will start at right back in a strong Celtic side looking to book a place in the semi-final of the competition.

Compper will start at right-back giving Kris Ajer and Jozo Simunovic another outing together in central defence.

Brendan Rodgers has resisted the chance to freshen up his side with today’s team very likely to be the one that starts next Sunday away to Sevco at Ibrox.

A win against Morton will take Celtic into the last four and two matches away from retaining the Scottish Cup.

Last season the hoops beat Sevco 2-0 in a one sided semi-final at Hampden but had to wait until stoppage time for Tom Rogic to score the winning goal in the final against Aberdeen.

CELTIC: De Vries; Compper, Ajer, Simunovic, Tierney; Brown, Ntcham; Forrest, Rogic, Sinclair; Dembele

SUBS: Bain, Lustig, Kouassi, McGregor, Roberts, Musonda, Edouard
